Unwelcome Prophets

I have been pondering on the impacts of prophets, some change the entire world though usually not in their lifetime. What is the success rate? How many disappear into obscurity?

The forgotten prophets

Walking the knife edge of

Delusion and sanctity

The cross or the asylum

 

The visionary insanity

Not tolerated

Then worshipped

With hindsight

 

Or gone in the desert

Lost, never heard of

Errant singularities

Aborted by man

 

Where are they now?

How many?
